Masculine Pet Bed, End Table, Makeover

7 Materials
I spent $7 at a thrift store and turned this hexagon end table upside down to create a shadow box to display tools to honor the working man. I had some spare feet from an ottoman and attached them to the bottom, formerly know as the top. The pet room has lots of flannel and denim for the manliest of creatures.

Took a pair of hubby's work jeans, pieced it together and glued it in the bottom of the shadow box.  


Took the door off.  Cleaned.  Sanded & primed.

Used some egg crate foam for the bed cushion.  Covered it with a flannel shirt.

Found some tools in the shed and glued them to the denim.  Cut and attach trim pieces to support quarter inch glass on top.  Added more trim pieces to the top of the glass.  Paint.

Made more denim and flannel pillows for pet's comfort.

Ready for use.

    How did you get the glass cut to fit? If you went to a store can you say about what it cost?

    How cute is this! Lovin' it! Hey, you can carefully cut the collar off then wrap it around the "fur baby's" neck and button it...looks so cute.
